THE HISTRIONICS "Never Mind The Pollocks, Here's The Histrionics"


Published February 16, 2013


The Histrionics are a “Concept-Art-(Heritage)-Rock-Cover-Band”.
The central premise of The Histrionics’ project is the synthesis of the attributes of rock music culture with the concerns of visual art discourse. Rock/pop classics are re-interpreted by means of novel lyrics that re-contextualise each song within the history, discourse, theory and controversy surrounding the visual art-world.

The Histrionics use the ubiquitous Australian trope of “the cover band” as the framework for the collision of rock’n’roll, performance art, pedagogy and humour.

The Histrionics perform the difficult balancing act between homage and parody, between art and entertainment, between conceptual art and outright fun.
